Honey Boy

In case you are a millennial, you undoubtedly grew up enjoying Disney popular Even Stevens, which starred the runaway star, Shia LaBeouf. And as, unfortunately, our society is acquainted with the history of dark actors, LaBeouf 's autobiographical depiction is special throughout his life. It's very disturbing to see what was going behind the scenes with a kid who acted as a source of so much happiness. Honey Boy by LaBeouf follows the character called Otis on his long road of self-acceptance is a compelling depiction of childhood pain, violence, recovery, and eventually redemption. It transforms the dysfunctional adolescence of Otis and his life as an adult in courtroom therapy and addresses the challenges that lead to his brutal and violent behavior.

The background of Honey Boy is intensified by the fact that LaBeouf, who casts himself into the movie to perform his father, has a closed circuit. LaBeouf brings the release into success in peace with his pain — a positive path for a hero we hope for every performer.

Sorry to Bother You

Sorry to Bother You shed insight, though not mentioning a single emotional illness explicitly, on what overwhelmingly affects black and brown people's mental wellbeing across societal processes and mechanisms.

Once Cassius, the movie’s main character - known as Cash, winds up becoming a telemarketer, he discovers that by the usage of a "white accent" he will gain more success with the customers. In the course of the story, Cash begins to climb into turmoil throughout the corporate ladder. Cash focuses on "white accent," the more his partnerships and values deteriorate.

It depicts an internal path that other wealthy citizens do not realize — a path that does not have a lucrative race or gender but has serious mental repercussions. By showing this plainly, the film reveals the challenges that people with colors face every day.

Frances Ha

Frances Ha may be viewed as a film that polarizes – either you love it or you hate it. On either side, the film provides a straightforward new outlook on codependence and the anxieties of adulthood navigation.

Frances, portrayed in New York City by Greta Gerwig is a 27-year-old actress. Following a mutual breakup and a slight break-up in friendship, she was left with her vision in entering and living the community on her own. Whereas several other upcoming stories include seismic Romanticism for women, Frances Ha encourages the development of isolation, self-analysis, frustration, and imperfection.


The main character of Anomalisa, Michael Stone, is a writer and speaker inspired to overcome depression. While delivering a keynote speech at a lecture, Stone encounters a special lady and a slight love tale begins. The intentional creation of this environment presents the perception of distress in a perfectly multi-dimensional manner, but it also incorporates the unusual yet common symptoms of neuropsychiatric known as Fregoli syndrome.

Fregoli syndrome is known as a delusion, in which the individual assumed that strangers, in reality, were just friends in disguise. The film utilizes stop-motion drawings of the same individual with indiscernible voices to offer the audience an understanding of what this disorder is all about.

While it is an efficient method to shift the viewpoint of the listener, it varies from Fregoli's real-life experience. Strangers may look and sound different, but they feel familiar with this condition. Strangers are most sometimes misidentified as a relative or beloved — a situation that creates considerable uncertainty and anxiety. Stone may not have anxiety and depression in the film, as most people suffering from the Fregoli syndrome in real life do. Nevertheless, Anomalisa provides a practical description of how the depression cloud is navigated.

The Soloist

Based on a true story, The Soloist follows Steve Lopez, a journalist as he meets Nathaniel Ayers a poor and schizophrenic guy. After Ayers was once found to be a student at Juilliard, Lopez has made it his job to improve his situation.

The film does not demonstrate how a precious person dealing with schizophrenia should be adequately treated, but it does well to reflect the reality of the mental disorder. The viewer is not offered a "mad" cookie-cutter in Ayers, but a timeline that gives more meaning to its state and its existing position.
